Today is Quotable Sunday thanks to Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni. Each Sunday, we share a few of our favorite quotes. This week, I decided to focus on perseverance. I need to lose 20 pounds. I decided to take baby steps and focus on my goal 10 pounds at time. My goal is to lose 10 pounds within the next 8 weeks and I must embrace perseverance to be successful. My weight has been a struggle for me over the years, I can't manage to get it off I love food, but I hate to exercise. My health has become a factor now, I'm borderline diabetic so it's imperative that I start exercising regularly and get off the excess weight.
I'm scared to death of needles so that's another incentive for me to work hard. I can't imagine giving myself insulin shots.
Here are a few quotes for those of us who need to perserve with some endeavor:
"Consider the postage stamp; its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing until it gets there." Josh Billings
"I do not think there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature." John D. Rockefeller
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." Winston Churchill
"Success seems to be connected with action. Successful men keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit." Conrad Hilton
"In order to get from what was to what will be, you must go through what is." Anonymous
